Describe campus/program, goals, and theory of change
Their main goals are to increase the amount of people on the Advisory Board that Lockheed has started.
Describe Blueprint Benchmark strengths
Their strengths are that they entire campus is T-STEM "aware" and is working together to improve.
What areas of interest do you have for Technical Assistance (up to 3 areas, rank in order of importance)?
1. More money from Educate Texas in order to have more students able to take Dual Credit and pay for their books. Their community partner charges tuition and charges for books so their progress has been toward AP, and the scores show tremendous improvement. They stated this twice. I explained twice. Their needed goal is to put their Leadership Team together with the members required by the Blueprint.
2.The goal is still to build their dual credit program.
3. Add additional members to their Advisory Committee like Lockheed.
What tools or resources would be valuable to your campus to support your implementation of the blueprint?
1. It would help them to see other campuses that are doing things differently.
What have been your challenges and how have you addressed them?
1. The challenges are that they have excellent scores and really see no reason to do things different
